Berry Minty Salad with Mixed Berries, Neem Honey Drizzle, and Pink Himalayan Salt

Hello happy healthy readers,

I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day Weekend! I know I did, and it was that much harder coming in to work today. But a day off in the beginning of the week means the weekend is that much closer. I meant to send a package of goodies over to my friend, and I did a great job with her letter but I am still figuring out the perfect dessert that flies well. Let me know what you guys think and if you have any suggestions!

The perfect summer berry salad with pink himalayan salt and neem honey drizzle. I am sure that I am not the first one to combine salt and fruit together, but the ingredients were on my shelf and I knew there was no going back.

Salt makes sweet taste sweeter. I guess you could apply that to life as well. I am sure This was also a hit at the BBQ I went to yesterday with some old friends and a good catch up session. I tried veggie hot dogs for the first time and I was very impressed. There was great company and there was good wine.

Try to use organic honey and organic berries.

Ingredients

2 cups mixed berries, I used blackberries, blueberries and strawberries because it is what I had on hand but you can use your favorite mix

1 tsp pink Himalayan salt

1 tablespoon neem honey

1/4 cup mint leaves, or more to taste

Directions

Wash berries and pat dry. Add honey to taste and mix, top with mint leaves and salt. Mix well and serve. This salad gets better the longer you let the salt break down the berries. Good for a day or two.

Can be made vegan if you sub agave for the honey.

The All Fruit Smoothie

Just the power of fruit and this smoothie will have you at your fruit limit for the day. If this one gets to thick, a couple tablespoons of water should do the trick.

Ingredients

3 rings pineapple, I use canned but I am trying to limit the food I buy in cans, so fresh would be ideal here

1 cup frozen or fresh berries

3 tablespoons water

1 banana, sliced

1 clementine, skin removed, sliced into small pieces

Directions

Blend and enjoy! Top with chia seeds for some added wow.
